president obama's key statement here today because the president and secretary of state john kerry also spoke today. president obama came out and said, we have not made a final decision on actions that will be taken. that's the key point here. he also made it clear that it will not involve -- any action taken will not involve any boots on the ground. i think that's the major headline you'll see in the newspaper tomorrow. when secretary kerry started speaking around 1:00, a speech very aggressive and very restrained at the same time, markets fluttered around, drooped going to the close and then rally just in the last few seconds. take a look at the markets intraday here. i would say concern but no panic that was going on today. importantly, we generally had very low volume once again. light volume. volatility, the vix is up, two-month high. not dramatically elevated. the worry, protracted conflict, that we cannot get a short, surgical strike in at this point. overall, this is the last drading day of the summer. actually, it's not been a very bad summer. it's funny to look at the summer f

's a bipartisan group of 93 congressmen, 77 republicans and 16 democrats who signed a letter to president obama asking him to consult and receive authorization from congress before ordering the use of u.s. military force in syria. i can tell you, michele, it's not likely the white house will seek out a vote up on capitol hill before they use any military action in syria but say they have reached out to senior congressional leaders in order to get their buy in on this. the question whether it comes from any sort of official advising consent role by congress will be left open here for the next several hours and days. those strikes could be coming now within days and a lot of very overt discussion in u.s. media about the military option including possible targets. so clearly we are down to hours if not days. >> thank you for that update. let's discuss this further with former ambassador mark ginsberg and harry labelle. mr. ambassador, let me start with you np attack that's coming is so pre-ordained, so advertised and so limited we've been told already by the white house. would you recommend this m

obama, president obama, says things that people buy into. he causes them to believe they're victims. he causes them to believe that if they confiscate even more money from wealthy americans they'll be better off. and they're voting for it. and as a consequence of that, many of them have been unemployed for a long time. so if we have yet another president -- we've had two of them back to back, george w. bush, republican, big spender, barack obama, democrat, big spender, it's not about liberals and conservatives, if we have yet another four or eight-year term of this thing, there'll be more people unemployed and we'll start looking like the european economies. at that point, somebody will wake up, somebody will say we have to fend for ourselves, like ronald reagan did when he got rid of jimmy carter, and then we can move forward. so i guess the answer is people kind of get what they vote for. and they're getting exactly what they voted for. now, for the last three terms, in our fourth term. >> yeah, well said. good to have you on the program, t.j. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we'll

be the case. but i think as president obama made clear, he really doesn't want to get involved to the syrian civil war. this is all about punitive action against syria for the gas attack, the chemical weapons attack, of a week and a half ago. and it is also to establish credibility with iran about the willingness of the united states to take strong action in the region. but i don't think we see ans escalating theory here. >> the price the of oil -- we all know syria doesn't export a whole lot of oil, so that's not at issue here. but they are expecting a ripple effect that would effect the countries that do export oil. do you? >> i agree very much with david. i think this will be a very isolated. meant to send a message, not just to enemies but to our friend. we have lots of friends around the world who are relying on the guarantees who have made them. people in japan, taiwan, israel. where we have said things are unacceptable. if we say something is unacceptable in syria and we still do nothing and friends say can we count on the united states. this is meant to send a message to friends. mea

of tapering, obama appointing the successor to bernanke. the continuing resolution expires and the consumption tax hike decision in japan. so if we believe, if as we do believe that we don't see a tapering in september after nearly 20 percent rally in stocks this year, perhaps it might be prudent to start pulling back ahead of what no doubt will be a messy few months of uncertainty even without the tapering. look at the day on wall street today. the market was higher. in fact we're looking at gains across the board but still expected to show a down week because we have had three days of selling. today the do you up 27 points, nasdaq up 15 and the s&p 500 up about 6.5. i'll see you tomorrow.

? >> i don't know if it's bound to happen. president obama was clearly saying before he goes on vacation he's not in the mood to make any deals with the republicans this fall, certainly not where obamacare is concerned. i don't think he's really eager to make any deals on any new spending cuts. he's telling republicans, look, raise the debt ceiling, no strings attached, can't be stupid and shut the government down and hurt the economy. on the fed, i thought it was interesting, he didn't make a lot of news there, but he had the opportunity to back off a little bit on the idea that larry summers is the leading candidate. he didn't do that. he didn't say, no, he isn't my leading candidate. he said i would defend anybody in my administration getting attacked. he could have backed off a little bit before he referred to mr. yellen instead of ms. yellen, before he got that wrong. >> he did list other names, broadened out the field. he said there are other names as well. >> yeah, he did say there are other names as well. i didn't hear him actually mention any -- >> no, he didn't mention them. >>
